Question about American Standard Kitchen Faucet 6310 020 White Easy Touch Pull-Out Kitchen...
I had the same issue with an American Standard faucet that I installed new 6 months ago. The diverter can be the issue if you have a sprayer attachment. Try unscrewing the sprayer head from the hose it's attached to. Now run the water full pressure with the hose pointed into the sink, obviously :~). After running the water for about 1 minute, connect the sprayer head back onto the hose, make certain the flat rubber washer and ring gaskets are seated in their grooves properly, and tighten until you have no water leaking from the sprayer head/hose connection. Now try the water through the faucet. If the problem was a temporary diverter issue, your pressure should be fine now. Good luck

These tend to be made as "low flow" faucets and that is the intention.... however.. in my low flow faucets i have located the plastic restrictors (usually where the water line hooks to the faucet) and CAREFULLY drilled them out to a larger opening and thus ended the low flow issue. try this at your own risk if you screw up it may cost you a faucet .. but as far as i know all new faucets are "low flow" and we either change it or live with it

I've never tried the American Standard kitchen faucet, so I'm not sure about the problem. As for me, buying the pull-out kitchen faucet from the company Kitchen Cabinets MT LAUREL, NJ was a good decision for my kitchen because it's way more convenient to use. And I don't struggle with low water flow at all, but I'm not sure if the problem is in the brand of faucet in particular.

Flow regulating check valve was the problem with my American Standard single control pull out faucet, Model 6310 series. Just unscrew the handle from the hose. Use knife edge to loosen the flow regulator check valve. Clean, replace, or just dont use it at all. Your choice.

I have actually tried the whole disconnecting and cleaning out debris and the pressure without the attachments is STRONG. But once I reassemble the pressure is just really weak again. And even more so if I have the dishwasher or washing machine running with it.

In addition to all the other solutions, there is also a check or back flow valve, usually located in the connector from the faucet to the sprayer hose that often times gets clogged. Disconnect the sprayer hose, the valve is located on the supply side. Gently remove the rubber seal, and with a small screwdriver, very gently remove the check valve. These are very delicate, and will come apart. Note what order they come out. Once out, clean, and also check to see if the line is clogged behind it. Once cleaned , reassemble. Good luck!

You want to know if you can fix a sudden low volume /pressure delivery problem on an American Standard model AS4205100 H7, one hole / single lever with pullout spray And is it fixable by owner?
Yes and maybe!
All plumbing systems are plauged with debrie buildup. Every time you turn on a faucet the water starts moving and will bring bits of debrie up from the water main or well. Most are small and will pass through to be caught by the screen in the aireator. Sometimes a relatively large piece comes along and dosen't make it through to the screen. It is stuck in the body of the valve.
Fixing takes a little mechanical ability.
First, turn off the water to the faucet in question. Then carefully disasemble paying close attention to the order of disasembly so you can reverse the order when putting back together. As each part is removed inspect it for that troublesome bit. I find that a little bit of wire or a paper clip is helpfull. Carefully reasemble. If the volume is still low then you missed finding that bit. Try again or call in a local pro.

SOURCE: apparent flow blockage
I would turn off the water then check to make sure you have good flow up to the faucet itself. If you do then there might be a proplem with the cartridge or diverter. does it have a sprayer? If it has a sprayer head for the spout of the faucet then there will be what the call a check valve inside the spray head itself that canbe removed with a skinny screwdriver or something thin and long

SOURCE: Slow and nonexistent water flow.
Start by removing the spray head from the hose. Pull the spray head out and with a channel lock pliers unthread connection between the spray head and hose. BE CAREFUL not to let the hose fall back down into the faucet. With the hose directed down toward the sink test for volume by turning on the faucet. If you get a nice volume the problem is in the spray head. This is usually the case. Put the spray head back on then remove the aerator. It's the screen where the water comes out of the spray head. Clean out the assembly ( 3-4 parts). Reassemble and test.
Good luck, Phil
